All services received from beginning to end were excellent
Jan 29, 2020
Waited over an hour to even speak to a provider, she accidentally walked into my room twice, blame the lack of organization on a car accident on I-35, showed no concern, made a stereotype that about bringing "a bestie" and getting my "favorite Frappuccino from Starbucks" before I get my blood drawn at my next visit since I'm a young female. Getting my xrays from a student was more organized than my provider was. As I was led to getting my xrays done, the woman didn't know where she was going and I sensed she that she didn't know what she was doing and that another nurse was just too lazy to show her where to take me. I don't plan to see Karen Holmes again. I would rather drive 40 minutes to the Taylor doctors office than see her again.
